Adalia and Jamari are the first of command of a guild of players from the online game The Golden Age. Adalia, the bigger sister, is careful, persistent and dedicated, whilst Jamari, the First Officer, is more impulsive and doesn’t always respect the chain of command. They represent a change of profile, since God’s Army doesn’t need “choir boys” any more, but experienced strategists such as MMORPG players. Are the sisters up to the task? Will they be able to overcome their differences?
The oldest war of them all, good versus evil, one of the founding myths of Western society, is taken to a whole new level. Virtual reality and concrete reality are entwined in this epic supernatural fantasy book.
I found the author’s style very lean and concise, which was unexpected, considering that this is a long book. The dialogues are central to the storytelling, as they’ll comprise most of the necessary information to engage the reader. I’ll be expecting new releases by Kobie Newton from now on. Great read!
Although I have nothing to compare this piece to, considering that as I felt it was in a realm all on its own. I thought it was intriguing, vividly descriptive and in many ways thought provoking. Author Kobie Newton’s lavish scene descriptions painted a picture in my head that just left me in awe and placed me in the center of all the action. I'd say this is an outstanding work due to the demons and obsession theme of the book and how it just all comes back to the games. I thought that the Main Characters, Adalia and Jamari are presented with deep POV that only a seasoned author can portray with shear perfection.
From the very start of this book you will be hooked or an on all out thrill ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat till the very end. This is definitely an out-of-the-ordinary story that will captivate you and take you somewhere far away from your everyday life. This is what experiencing the fantasy is all about and can only vote 5 Stars for the “Order of Saint Michael” by Author Kobie Newton.
It isn’t long before things get really exciting and those MMO’s I read about crop up. Adalia and her younger sister Jamari, our heroines, are high ranking characters in the Massive Mutliplayer Online Role Playing Game, ‘The Golden Age.’ This game, owned by the company K4 Games, is actually a recruiting tool used by an Angelic Army, God’s Army – a tool for the modern age. Advancing with the times, the Commanders and Generals of the Army (who are losing, btw) are letting go of their staples in Choir recruits and aggressively angling to find new talent… in a new world. This world includes the Internet – a place the lost go to mope, yet where some Faithful can still be found.
For someone who plays MMO’s, this book is a minor dream come true. Well written and fast paced, Kobie J. Newton has crafted a tale that will entice countless. What if the games we play really are windows to our souls, recruiting tools to discover our talents, talents to be used in the ultimate battle of good vs. evil? It’s a heady, intoxicating thought, a thought the “Order of Saint Michael: God’s Army” plays well. I can’t wait for Book 2!
This sounds far fetched but within the storyline it works. The game allows the Angels to find Holy Warriors who are human. The sisters have a gift that allows them to see the spirit realm and the story is about their first adventure as members of the Order of Saint Michael.
Andrea Emmes is a christian musician who loves theater and has taken all her God given talents and is using them as a audiobook narrator. The voices of the characters are unique and consistent throughout the audiobook. She brings the story to life and from the beginning you as a listener are transported to the world these sisters live in. I felt real emotion and concern for the characters as I listened.
This is the first book in a series I am excited to continue listening to. I received this book as a gift for an honest review.
